July 2010 Book of the Month.

This is a lovely canvas on which to tell a series of family stories over some fifty years as we follow the interactions between beach house owners and the Devon locals.  It’s like a series of short stories but the whole lot comes together in the closing chapter.  Warm, witty, eventful, full of secrets, passions, lust and hope, it is a pure joy to read.

The Beach Hut Synopsis

'FOR SALE: a rare opportunity to purchase a beach hut on the spectacular Everdene Sands. The Shack has been in the family for fifty years, and was the first to be built on this renowned stretch of golden sand...' Jane Milton doesn't want to sell her beloved beach hut, which has been the heart of so many family holidays and holds so many happy memories. But when her husband dies, leaving her with an overwhelming string of debts, she has no choice but to sell. THE BEACH HUT follows the stories of the people who own the beach huts, families who come to Everdene each year, people who fall in - or out of - love, remembering their pasts, or trying to forget them...Veronica Henry has brilliantly drawn together the comings and goings of life at the beach huts over one long, hot, lazy summer...
